Automated Weather Stations, are typically owned and maintained by local
wildland fire agencies to monitor local fire danger conditions. These
weather stations collect, store, and send data to the National Interagency
Fire Center in Boise, Idaho via the GOES satellite.
Fire managers use this data to
predict fire behavior and monitor fuels, resource managers use the data to
monitor environmental conditions. Usually updated every hour. Link opens

All raw data records day of the month and times in Zulu (UTC), subtract 7 hours if local time is PDT (UTC-7), 8 hours if
local time is PST (UTC-8).
Click above to get today, yesterday, past week and month
graphs from KCABOULD3. Weather data updated every 15 minutes. Unless power
outage or system issue intervenes, after all the weather station is in a
California rain forest.
Looking south-west towards Ben
Lomond Mountain. The image is updated every minute. Winter exposure
requires the camera to be pointing downwards to avoid sun-burning the camera
sensor. (Note burn marks in the upper right hand quadrant.)
A 24 hour time lapse movie is available below of the same scene,
WeatherUnderground. Note that this feature is still in beta mode SO HICCUPS
ARE TO BE EXPECTED. The time lapse movie frame is currently updated every
five minutes with the above image.
24 Hour Weather Camera
Due to the poor quality of Wunderground's Flash compilation.
I've managed to put my own "yesterday" 24 hour time-lapse weather webcam that
shows both 5 minute incremental images from the webcamera along with the weather
conditions superimposed over the webcam image. The timelapse webcam movie
updates at midnight for the previous day. This feature is under development and
is subject to change.
Outdoor temperature sensor is currently at a southern exposure
couple hundred feet above the valley floor above a mile north of town. Previous
to August 7th, the station was located on Bear Creek Road near town. For local
downtown temperatures - check out San Lorenzo Water District.
Note: Graph displays Station
(Raw) Barometric Pressure. Current pressure trend
unfortunately records time interval changes. Check graph to determine in general
whether pressure is increasing or dropping.
Note: Wind conditions in downtown Boulder Creek typically are much higher
than what is represented here due to 'valley wind-tunnel effect'. This weather
station is off Highway 9 about a mile from Boulder Creek and sits a couple
hundred feet above the valley floor . On the wind rose compass, the inner band
is 10 mph and the outer band is set to 20 mph. Anything beyond the 20 mph band
is high winds!
Due to power outages, some of the graphs may not be accurate as to
totals however are accurate, once power is restored since the weather base station has battery backup.
Rain totals for January 2008 Big Storms:
Typical: Sporadic rains start in October with heavy rains starting in
January. Rains decrease in intensity in April-May. Rainfall totals are reset the
1st of every October. Better detailed rain graphs (in/hr) can be found on the
WeatherUnderground daily/historical report for this station.
Note: The GOES Solar X-ray Imager has gone hay-wired and has been taken
offline while the SXI team tried to troubleshoot the problem. Therefore the SXI
solar images are currently not available. For the latest in operational status,
